Iowa County Hazard Mitigation Plan

After the recent flood of 2008, Iowa County was permitted to submit a grant proposal for funds through the FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. In the fall of 2009, Iowa County was awarded funds to prepare a County-wide All-Hazard Mitigation Plan.


The planning grant and process provided Iowa County and its participating local jurisdictions an opportunity to identify and prioritize its hazard risks to develop mitigation strategies that will inform public investments, increase public awareness, and provide better protection of life and property. In addition, the plan allows those communities affected by the natural and man-made disasters the opportunity to access to federal relief funds and resources.
